I am beginning to question my diagnosis altogether. I was diagnosed with PMR 5 years ago and have been on and off Prednisone 3 times. My sister recently mentioned to me that she had experienced hip pain and inflammation to the point of not being able to walk up stairs and discovered through an elimination diet that she was reacting to wheat. (did not test positive for celiac) On a wheat-free diet she is pain free. I decided to try eliminating wheat and within 4 days I felt noticeably better. I too tested negative to celiac. I am now eating wheat for a month to confirm whether my CRP goes back up. After 2 weeks I am feeling the usual burden of pain and fatigue setting in. I will be interested to see what the numbers show.
Any similar experiences out there?
